The WeatherBug Program is an extensive web-based program that provides live and historical weather data, computer-animated lessons, and interdisciplinary units that teach science and technology as well as math and geography. Numerous program features allow students to analyze and graph local and national weather data, track storm parameters, and view live and time-lapsed video images. Beyond the classroom benefits, the WeatherBug Program provides Ramsey with a valuable weather information resource accessible via the Internet and local television.
A state-of-the-art WeatherBug weather station recording 27 weather parameters and a motion camera is located at Ramsey High School. Each district school has a lifetime site-license to WeatherBug Achieve, an on-line database of interactive and dynamic K-12 lessons and activities. This tool is available to every teacher in each of the five Ramsey schools. In addition to accessing Ramsey weather data, there are over 8,000 WeatherBug schools nationwide whose data is published on-line and is available to Ramsey teachers and students for analysis.
